The 2030 Agenda for sustainable development has had a successful implementation in European libraries. Never in the past has a UN or EU programme encompassing such complex social, economic and environmental issues so spontaneously and enthusiastically been received in libraries.

European libraries are setting up SDG-oriented policies, programmes and projects. But what is the official policy pursued by the two library organisations mainly involved in the SDG development at international level: EBLIDA and IFLA?

The aim of this Webinar is to build upon the plural debate surrounding sustainable development and libraries in order to find valid strategies designed to reinforce library involvement and make the most out of the political and financial opportunities offered to libraries at European level. This is particularly needed now that libraries have fully entered the post-Covid 19 phase.

EBLIDA has opened a Sustainable Development House with services, training and tools offered to the library community in Europe.

Its services include the delivery of the following reports:

EBLIDA is also offering consultancy work on ”The European Structural and Investment Funds 2021-2027”;
Check also the EBLIDA Matrix, with EU and Library Policies, ESIF opportunities and Eurostat Indicators.

All are welcome to participate!
